Spielberg To Remake When Worlds Collide

Movie mogul STEVEN SPIELBERG is set to produce a remake of 1951 science fiction thriller WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE.

The original film, which sees a group of people fleeing to another planet to escape a cataclysmic collision between earth and a dead star, won an Oscar for special effects in 1952.

Spielberg has enlisted the talents of action and fantasy film specialist STEPHEN SOMMERS to direct the remake, after being impressed with his efforts on THE MUMMY and VAN HELSING.

Few today could do it better justice. I just wonder whether Spielberg or Peter Jackson could do the better job of redoing Forbidden Planet--which is what I would really want to see with today's better visual techniques. Although I almost hope no one does the Forbidden Planet remake, it might fizzle like Lost in Space. It would be hard to remake The Day the Earth Stood Still because few actors today could match or exceed the exceptional chemistry of those otherwise mediocre artists in their superlative roles.Perhaps Spielberg is remaking WWC because FB or DESS would be too hard to beat their original renditions?
